We are asked to find the temperature at the given conditions. Since mass, volume and pressure are given, we will use the ideal gas equation to calculate for temperature.

P = pressure, atm
V = volume, L
n = moles, mol
R = gas constant = 0.08206 (L·atm)/(mol·K)
T = temperature, K

In the ideal gas equation, moles are needed but the mass of Argon (Ar) is given instead. We’ll calculate the moles of Ar using its mass and molar mass.
